i am probably wrong but i'll take a shot at it:

i get 8 but only by logical thinking (no formulas)

12, 23, 34, 45, 56, 67, 78, 89

in order for it to be n+9, the units and tens digit has be be consecutive (since n + 10 would just be a change in the tens digit 10x)

This is a 2 digit #

any two digit # is of the form 10*x+y

Now its given 10*y + x = 10*x+y + 9 (this is n+9)

So y=x+1

Hence there are 8 numbers
